Marine Bulk Cargo Measurement Surveys
The basics of naval architecture are outlined so that you can follow and understand the steps taken during a marine bulk cargo measurement (MBCM) survey. This might also be known as a ‘draught survey’. MBCM surveys are usually carried out on bulk carriers, a type of ship that has undergone substantial changes and improvements since the 1990s. However, while the size of the ships has steadily increased and their designs have changed, the original principles and concepts of naval architecture remain unchanged.
